Long Lake

4 posts in this topic

Hows the action out on long? I live like 1.5 miles from the lake and i practically drive by it everyday and always think about giving it a shot for a couple hours when i need to kill some time. Never been on the lake during hard water but spend a lil time on it in the summer, but not usually fishing, usually just take the boat out there to do a lil skiing and wakeboarding, and check out the beach of course. I see people are drving all over any suggestions?

Used to fish Long Lake in Long Lake (Orono Area) a lot. Nothing but huge Bullheads and Small Green Sunfish out there anymore. Carp too.

Believe what you want about Long Lake(orono area), more fish for me grin.gif

Numbers are low for all species except carp, but average size is big for almost all species. I wouldn't head there for a meal, but time invested in finding the big crappies, gills, bass, and pike may be rewarded with some monster fish. I have lived in Long Lake my whole life, fished it frequently over the last 20 years. So depending on your fishing objectives, Long Lake may be a good or bad lake for you to fish.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
